|May-14-06|| ||Gypsy: <Dr. Funkenstein> I'd expect something like 24...Qd8 25.Qh6+ Kg8 26.Bg5 f6 27.Bxf6 Qd7 28.Qg5+ Kf8 30.Rf1... with unstopable threats to the king.|
|May-14-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: Instead of 13...Qb6, 13...d5 may be adequate.|
|May-14-06|| ||Gypsy: It seems that Kamsky knew the opening variation from his 'previous life': Kamsky vs Khalifman, 1999|
|May-14-06|| ||euripides: Some other possibilities are 24... Qc5 25 Qf6 Re2 26 Rf1 (24 Qh8+ or 28 Bh6+ allow more complications as Black can reply to Qxa8 with Qf2) Qc7 27 Qh8+ Ke7 28 Qxa8 or 24...Qc7 25 Qf6 Re2 26 Bh6+ Ke8 27 Qh8+ Kd7 28 Qxa8.|
|May-14-06|| ||dehanne: Peculiar to see a Super-GM go down in flames like a 1500-player.|
|May-14-06|| ||Gypsy: <euripides: Some other possibilities are 24... Qc5 25 Qf6 Re2 26 Rf1 ...> and/or with the insertion of <26.Bg5 Kg8> (lest 27.Qh8#) <27.Rf1>... as now the mate(s) can not be even postponed much.|
|May-14-06|| ||euripides: <gypsy> very nice ! <24...Qf5 25 Qf6 Re2 26 Bg5> Ke8 also fails to 27 Rf1 Qc7 28 Qh8+ Kd7 29 Rxf7+ Re7 30 Rxe7 mate.|
|May-14-06|| ||keypusher: <24...Qd8 25.Qh6+ Kg8 26.Bg5> Fritz notes that 26....Qa5 in response threatens ...Re1+.|
|May-14-06|| ||Gypsy: <keypusher: <24...Qd8 25.Qh6+ Kg8 26.Bg5> Fritz notes that 26....Qa5 in response threatens ...Re1+.> Oh, that again! Weren't we already past that? I guess, we better growl back to 27.Bd2 Qd8 28.Bb3... afterall.|
|May-14-06|| ||Topzilla: Nice to see how Kamsky crushed Svidler so fast.
Is always nice to see the lazy shortdraw GMs losing so fast, probably Svidler was gonna offer a draw at move 25 or so.
|May-14-06|| ||pkjohn146: <Topzilla> apparently offering draws is a no-no at this tourney.|
|May-14-06|| ||Topzilla: I know, but Svidler know very well how to get to drawn positions, lets remember that Svidler is from the Kramnik Leko school of draws.|
|May-15-06|| ||runners: Great game ,Gata!!!!!!! I like this game very much! Fantastic!|
|May-15-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: The plan begun by 13...Qb6 fails because of the consequences of the resource 16 Nd5!. This suggests providing for these consequences by 13...Re8. Instead of 14...Rfd8, 14...Rad8 keeps the option of 15...Rfe8 in reply to 15 Qe1. This was simply a case of Svidler failing to foresee all of the consequences of a choice, and no one can avoid that,long and bitter experience is the teacher.|
|May-15-06|| ||Shajmaty: <Topzilla: lets remember that Svidler is from the Kramnik Leko school of draws.> Here U come again, in your "only-Topalov-knows-how-to-fight" style. Do U know who is the ONLY player with 3 draws (plus a defeat) in this tournament? U got it: Vesselin Topalov!|
|May-15-06|| ||dhotts: It appears to me that Svidler had a brain fart and blundered on move 15...Nd7?. Is this observation wrong?|
|May-15-06|| ||onesax: I agree, up to move 15 black was fine (although his d-pawn potentially looks weak, especially if white gets in c4), however even after the nice 16. Nd5! black missteps again with 17. ... Bg4? - 17. ... Bxd5 18. Bxd5 Bf6 would've given him a better chance at survival ... after that almost all the moves to the finish are forced!|
|May-16-06|| ||alp: When u lose so badly nobody cares about the bad move that leads the defeat; 15...Ad7 was the terrible mistake from Svidler which made Kamsky hero of the day...|
|May-16-06|| ||danp01851: How is 15..Nd7 the big blunder? Isn't it 17..Bg4? What is so wrong with 17.. Bxd5 ??|
|Aug-21-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Analysis, (http://www.geocities.com/lifemaster...) if you are interested.|
|Nov-26-06|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <danp01851: How is 15..Nd7 the big blunder? Isn't it 17..Bg4? What is so wrong with 17.. Bxd5 ??> It appears that after 17. ... Bxd5 18. Bxd5, White would be clearly winning. He is threatening either to win an exchange on a8 or a piece on e7. Black cannot defend against both of these threats.|
|Dec-01-06|| ||charms: 15... Nd7 was propbably the worst move svidler ever played.|
|Dec-01-06|| ||setebos: Svidler is a fat lazy genius :)|
|Dec-01-06|| ||kevin86: White had to be careful -a frightful blunder would have been 24 ♗d4 ♕e1+ and mate next.|
A game that surely missed "Svidler's list".
|Sep-27-07|| ||Chicago Chess Man: Star moves of the game:
16. Nd5!! leading to a dominating setup for white.
20. Be3! Gaining a tempo by attacking the queen and setting up the demolition move 21 Rxf6
24. Bd2! Maybe an obvious move, but I like it all the same. White had to see this before playing 21 Rxf6. Not 24. Bd4? Re1+
Overall, 16 Nd5 was the crusher leading to a blitz-like win for Kamsky.
